When designing your website, your developer can leverage Windward System Five data to populate the site. We even integrate third-party carts.

Display Online Inventory

Some businesses choose to just showcase their inventory through our visually pleasing catalogue option. Using Windward's e-Comm Connector SDK, your developer can configure how your products are displayed online, as well as what information you want with them:

  • Product name
  • Description
  • Price
  • Quantity available

You can also feature certain products to highlight them for marketing purposes. The effective use of product images and descriptions will help build your brand online.

Move Slow-moving Inventory

If you have product that’s moving slowly, you can use Windward's e-Comm Connector SDK to promote online-only deals and offer discounts and coupons to boost sales and increase site traffic. You can use these same tactics to promote new products or services.

Bring Your Products and Services to the Customer

Convenience is an important factor in customer satisfaction, and what could be easier than offering online sales? It eliminates customer travel time by bringing your products and services right to their doorstep. By having a website that’s simple to navigate, it makes it easier for customers to search the ‘aisles’ of your virtual store to find the products they need faster.
